English Drama Group
New Play 2015: A Midsummer Night’s Dream
by William Shakespeare
on Monday 23 and Wednesday 25 November 2015
at 7.30 pm in room 521
Demetrius loves Helena, but should marry Hermia. But Hermia loves Lysander. So they run away, into a magic forest of fairies and mysteries. In this magic world, nothing seems the same …
We want to put magic and love on stage and present this very famous play by Shakespeare in simple English – all the action, but easy to understand!
Why English drama? It’s interesting, it’s different and it’s FUN!
We are 20 students from year 10 to 12 and our director is English teacher Mrs. Glinka. We meet in our free time once a week and when the performance is near, we sometimes rehearse at the weekend or in the evening, too. We try to do everything ourselves, which is a lot more than learning text and playing scenes: designing the stage, organising costumes, hair, make-up and props, operating the lights, promoting our play, filming the show etc. By the way: We are always interested in new talent, so come and join the English Drama Group!
